No, you can not: Using metoclopramide with OLANZapine is not recommended. Treatment with either of these medications can cause Parkinson like symptoms and abnormal muscle movements, and combining them may increase that risk.

Drug interactions: 'Using metoclopramide together with OLANZapine is not recommended. Treatment with either of these medications alone can cause Parkinson-like symptoms and abnormal muscle movements, and combining them may increase that risk.' (http://www.drugs.com/interactions-check.php?drug_list=1612-11352,1744-1113) Please discuss this with your doctor.
